Big Names in Web Design Appearing Soon in Columbia

For the last few years, huge names in web design have been coming to speak at a conference in Columbia, SC.  People like President Obama's 2012 campaign design director, Josh Higgins (who is now a bigtime VP at Facebook in CA).  But no one outside of tech insider circles really knows about this conference.  Why?  Because tickets sell out so fast to attendees from as far away as Seattle and Japan, they don't have to do any PR.

Mike Switzer interviews Gene Crawford, founder and director of ConvergeSE, coming again to Columbia May 1st to 3rd.

SC’s Tax Incentives Beneficial to Individuals, Businesses and Communities

South Carolina, like many states, has taken a proactive stance with economic development by offering tax incentives which continue to change our state's business environment.  Our next guest says that these initiatives prove beneficial in job creation, protecting our natural resources, revitalizing historic structures and focusing on the needs of our communities.  However, he also says most of the benefits are under-utilized due to lack of knowledge that they even exist.

Mike Switzer interviews Rusty Cagle, a certified financial planner with ASE Wealth Advisors in Greenville, SC.  Additional resources:

Part of South Carolina Suffers in the “Southern Crescent”

Our next guest says that the Southeastern United States could become a much more powerful economic engine if it could figure out a way to keep its best and brightest people from continuing to abandon its poverty-stricken rural communities.  He says the affected areas combine to create a huge crescent-shaped region across the south that his organization refers to, in fact, as the Southern Crescent.

Mike Switzer interviews Andy Brack, president of The Center for a Better South.

Unemployed Tech Worker Reconfigures Success

A Navy veteran and Clemson University graduate, our next guest spent 11 years in the information technology field working with mainframe computers, and then he lost his job when the company he worked for migrated to a new network, eliminating his position. As he searched for jobs, he discovered that even with a bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems, he needed to update his technical skills and certifications. He found some financial aid, enrolled at Greenville Technical College, and on the same day he graduated, he updated his LInkedIn profile, and within three hours, received a phone call for a job interview with a local company. Within 24 hours, he had two job interviews lined up.

Mike Switzer interviews Brian McClure, who is now with CompuCom, a contractor for BMW's North American headquarters in Greer, SC.

New Standardized License Application Helps Business

Getting a business up and running can be a daunting challenge. Getting financing, establishing a business plan and getting the necessary government licenses and permits can be very confusing. For businesses that have people working in multiple cities and counties, securing the needed business licenses can be especially time-consuming.  To remedy this situation, our next guest's organization has collaborated with others around the state to create a standardized business license application, which she says makes the entire process much more business-friendly.

Mike Switzer interviews Reba Campbell, Deputy Executive Director of the Municipal Association of South Carolina.
